Families covered: Skrine of Bathford, Skrine of Warleigh

BLG1886 reported the "tradition" that the family descended from Don Eskrino who followed Philip of Spain when he came to marry Queen Mary but then stayed in England. However, BLG1886 went on to report that "It is, however, more probable that the Skrines of Warleigh are of the ancient family of Skerne of co. Durham, which settled afterwards in Yorkshire, Essex, and Dorset."
